Just when you thought SNL had all the man it could handle with Avengers star Chris Hemsworth, the March 28 return will Rock your world. Furious 7 and San Andreas star Dwayne Johnson will host his fourth SNL outing when the NBC sketch comedy series returns at month’s end, but who will join him this time around?

Fans of Bryan Fuller’s NBC Hannibal had an understandable tummy grumble when Season 3 ended up pushed to summer 2015, but at last we know when the third course will be served. NBC has officially announced a June premiere date for Hannibal Season 3, whetting appetites with a new photo of the culinary cannibal on a boss hog.
NBC’s Hannibal has dined with plenty of heroes and villains alike, but its latest Season 3 guest star is a bit of both. Heroes star Zachary Quinto will share a meal with the good Dr. Lecter when the next course premieres this summer, but as whom, you ask?
SNL’s post-40th anniversary run got off to a slightly-bound start with 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson this past weekend, but will Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth bring the hammer down? Check out the God of Thunder opposite Kate McKinnon in the first promos for this weekend’s latest SNL!
SNL’s Saturday return didn’t quite get everyone talking as much as the 40th anniversary special, but still left us with a few teasing bits to enjoy. Not only does a new deleted sketch reveal a first look at the 50 Shades of Grey sequel, but so too has cast vet Taran Killam come out in defense of the controversial ISIS sketch.
Now that SNL’s big 40th anniversary special lies behind us, with the God of Thunder in our future, this coming Saturday will whip SNL back into shape with the expert help of 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson. Preview our first post-40 SNL installment with all the Christian Grey references you can handle in the latest promo!
After six years and seven wonderful seasons, Parks and Recreation comes to an end. A series finale is similar to a memorial service, in that it’s often more for those attending (the fans) than for the departed (or departing, in this case) party. But Mike Schur, Amy Poehler and the fine folks behind and in front of the scenes at Parks and Rec managed to give us a finale that served not only its viewers, but itself and its characters. That’s no easy feat. How many times can one person cry during an hour of television? Watch the Parks and Rec finale to find out.
The gallant extravagance of NBC’s 40th anniversary SNL special left us less-than-enthused for 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson to return us to normal this Saturday, but our first March host will verily bring the thunder. Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth will take the SNL stage as our March 7 host, but what musical accompaniment mayeth the Asgardian Avenger summon?
So far, we've had an easy go of it in the final season of Parks and Recreation, as the show has paved the way for these characters to continue on a journey we won't get to experience. They've been slowly wrapping things up with moments of fan service that, no matter how expected, still feel comforting and fun, while still managing to commit to their own vision of how things should end. But it doesn't really get emotional until tonight's two new episodes, which continues the process of saying farewell while promising new beginnings.
SNL had itself an understandably busy weekend with all the 40th anniversary festivity, but February 28 will see the longrunning NBC sketch comedy series whipped back into shape, and appropriately so. 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson will take the stage on February 28 as our first post-40 SNL host, and those bondage jokes are a-comin’.
